SPOKANE, Wash. - Two Franklin County correctional officers are behind bars in the Spokane County Jail on federal charges of criminal conspiracy to distribute narcotics.   Their arrest comes after a three month long investigation by the Tri-Cities Drug Task Force and the D.E.A.

Court documents reveal that Kevin Still, a Franklin County corrections officer of 21 years and his live-in girlfriend Sonya Symons an officer for over 6 years are accused of attempting to purchase a large quantity of marijuana with the intent to distribute.

It's a plan, that documents reveal was very long and thought out, and involved Symons brother Troy Green of Spokane.

The records show both Still and Symons did not have the money to place the order of marijuana themselves, but wanted to broker a deal for Symons brother, who would front them a portion of the order.

According to the documents, the plan was, Green would buy marijuana for 3-thousand dollars per pound and still would receive a 500-dollar per pound brokerage fee, which he would re-invest in marijuana and sell himself for a profit.

Through undercover D.E.A agents and the use of surveillance, a case was developed against both Still, Symons and Green. The investigation led them to north Spokane, where Green and Still were arrested after attempting to buy marijuana. Symons was later arrested in Pasco.

In their court appearance today, a judge ordered them back into custody of the U.S. Marshall's at the Spokane county jail until their bail hearing next Wednesday. The three could face up to 5 years in jail and no more than 250-thousand dollars in fines.
